T-Mobile News & Updates: Weekend BOGO Sale; T-Mobile Looking To Help Samsung? [VIDEO]By Patrick J, UniversityHerald Reporter
T-Mobile is offering a Buy One, Get One sale this weekend and it is also might extend Samsung a helping hand.
T-Mobile stated that customers who buy a Galaxy S7 with T-Mobile's Equipment Installment and completes the 24 monthly bill credits gets a second unit for free. In addition consumers need to include a qualifying line of service. Since T-Mobile is also looking to reel in new customers, it is open to clients from other carriers. Those switching to T-Mobile can get up to $650 per line. However, the credit will not be available immediately. It would take about six to eight weeks and will be available as a prepaid Mastercard, Android Headlines reported.
The BOGO sale starts on Friday, Nov. 11 at 6:00am PT. It will end Sunday, Nov 13 at 11:59pm PT. It was suggested that interested parties call T-Mobile at 1-800-TMOBILE, visit their website or head to their local T-Mobile retailer.
Consumers surmise that this sale is T-Mobile's attempt to move large quantities of Samsung products following the failures of the Note 7. Recently, people have been buying fewer Samsung devices because of that, PC Mag reported.
The company offers a single postpaid plan, the T-Mobile ONE. This has received a lot of backlash lately with the customer getting stuck with their unlimited plan. However, having unlimited data with limited video streaming wasn't the problem. Also, the Galaxy S7 has an updated modem from Qualcomm which gives the user faster speeds with T-Mobile.
In other news, the company has been quite aggressive with their giveaways. Last October, CEO John Legere tweeted about a contest sending the winner to Mars. However, the contest ended on Oct. 11 and Legere failed to reach his target of 1,000,000 retweets. The winner most likely received a trip to anywhere in the US.
